Studying at a university, does not mean just sitting at lectures and studying. SUA students
have wide opportunities to spend their leisure time, relax and engage in sport activities or
University days are organised every year in autumn and spring by the students of our alma
mater with many cultural activities, sports competitions and social events. The matriculation
ceremony of first year students and matriculation ball at the beginning of academic year is a
long tradition too. Art groups and hobby clubs are united under The Club of Cultural and
Leisure activities of SUA. The oldest and most famous of these is the folklore ensemble
Zobor, in which hundreds of SUA students participated during its fifty years existence. It
consists of three groups: musical, dancing and girls choir. The ensemble Zobor performs
regularly at different events at home and abroad, participates in folklore shows and
Fans of Thalia, but also of humour and fun can join the students amateur theatre groups
„Divadielko na Osmičke“ and „Divadlo Krížom-krážom“. In their repertoire there are not
only theatre plays but also short comic performances that are part of the student events such
as matriculation ceremony, balls and other festivities. Both groups successfully represent
SUA at national theatre festivals and shows.
Afternoons and evenings in the dormitories have been accompanied by local students’ radio
broadcasting for nearly thirty years. The technicians, speakers and DJs entertain the crowds at
the university balls and festivities. The students’ television records and broadcast all news
happening in and outside the university.

integral part of The Club of Cultural and Leisure activities.
